Human Rights for Some—Indifference for Others

Human Rights for Some—Indifference for Others

My name is Vahid Razavi. I have been a member of the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots for the past five years. During this time, my former 501(c)(3) organization, Ethics in Tech, was awarded multiple grants to produce content on behalf of the Campaign by its Steering Committee.

With the Campaign’s support, Ethics in Tech organized events featuring speakers including Nobel laureate Mary Wareham, Mines Action Canada director Erin Hunt, and numerous experts in the field of artificial intelligence and autonomous lethal weapons systems. In addition to hosting luminaries in the activist space, Ethics in Tech also incorporated headlining comedians as part of our unique approach to addressing some of the most existential issues of our time.

Our events—especially prior to the Covid-19 pandemic—were well attended and drew national and international media coverage, including from Japanese broadcaster NHK World.

I have always been a steadfast supporter of the Campaign’s mission of a world free from lethal autonomous weapons. When Israel launched its genocidal retaliation against the Palestinian people following the horrific October 7 attacks, I and a number of Campaign members implored the Campaign’s Steering Commitee to make a public statement against the use of AI-powered weapons in Gaza. As a human rights organization, I believed the Campaign would naturally condemn what thousands of internationally experts including one of Israel’s leading Holocaust scholars called a “textbook case” of genocide.

Alas, imagine my dismay and disappointment when the Campaign terminated human rights attorney Ousman Noor after he published a social media post condemning the Gaza genocide. In the wake of this most dubious decision, more than 2,000 human rights defenders signed an open letter in support of Mr. Noor. This resounding show of support went unanswered by the Campaign’s Steering Committee.

Was Mr. Noor just a rogue disgruntled employee? Hardly. Another staff member, the Campaign’s UK coordinator, subsequently accused the Campaign of racism. When multiple staff members accuse an organization of open racism and retaliation for taking a position against genocide, the organization’s value’s demand further scrutiny.

I have been warned, threatened with expulsion, and told to be silent while I witness an AI- driven genocide before my very eyes. Is the innocent blood of tens of thousands of men, women, and children being spilled in Gaza not worthy of the Steering Committee to act?

In response to backlash from Coalition members, the Steering Committee has resolved to rearrange the proverbial chairs on the deck of the Titanic. They will be conducting a survey of Coalition members in the weeks ahead. I submit that the Campaign must immediately publish a statement condemning, the genocide, by the  use of AI-driven systems utilized by Israeli occupation forces in their assault on Gaza.

Project Nimbus used Google and AWS cloud for machine learning, AI using facial recognition, and object tracking and targeting.

Red Wolf mass facial recognition training all over occupied territories for maintaining apartheid control of Palestinians.

Blue Wolf used on smartphones to capture facial details of Palestinian users.

Smart shooter used for AI and Automatic shooting of Palestinians throughout the occupied territories for “crowd disbursement.”

Finally, Gospel that is used to target over 200 journalists that have been murdered and maimed, sometimes along with their families, throughout Gaza.

The embedded video was an event that I participated in with Ousman Noor and fellow coalition member in regards to countering intimidation and retaliation in peace and disarmament in support of Palestinian human rights advocates.

COUNTERING DISCRIMINATION AND INTIMIDATION IN PEACE AND DISARMAMENT: SUPPORTING ADVOCATES FOR PALESTINE

NGO campaigns working in peace and disarmament are plagued by Western-centric and racist structures. The response to Israel’s genocide in Gaza by several Western led NGOs, including through discrimination, intimidation and silencing of human rights advocates speaking up for Palestine, exemplifies the deep-rooted prejudice held towards the legitimate views and aspirations of non-white and Global Majority states and stakeholders.

This seminar examines these practices in light of the events at Stop Killer Robots, a coalition of 250+ civil society organizations across 70+ states, led by world leading peace and disarmament NGOs. In October 2023, leaders of the campaign dismissed Ousman Noor as Government Relations Manager, after he spoke up against apartheid, ethnic cleansing and occupation in Palestine, while coalition members calling for accountability and transparency have since been ignored.

As Gaza Burns, Injustice to One is Injustice to All – A Letter to Stop Killer Robots

As Gaza Burns, Injustice to One is Injustice to All - A Letter to Stop Killer Robots

Statement to call for accountability at Stop Killer Robots following the dismissal of Ousman Noor as Government Relations Manager, and for campaign statement on international law violations in Gaza and need for ceasefire.

Dear Steering Committee of Stop Killer Robots,

We, the undersigned, stand in solidarity with Ousman Noor, who was dismissed as Government Relations Manager at the Stop Killer Robots (SKR) campaign on the 27th October 2023 following his personal post on X/Twitter on the 14th October relating to the escalating violence in Israel-Palestine. His dismissal raises serious concerns regarding the Steering Committee’s (SC) implementation of SKR’s Vision and Values and commitment to an intersectional approach towards humanitarian disarmament, and we call upon the SC to take concrete and immediate steps to address these concerns.

As stated in the Notice of Termination, Ousman had performed this role for 3+ years with “dedication, commitment and skill” and his work was appreciated and respected across the SKR campaign coalition. The speed and severity of his termination, absent any disciplinary hearing, indicate that his dismissal was motivated by an effort to isolate him from the campaign, and to penalize him for expressing his views regarding the ongoing conflict.

Additional concerns are raised regarding the appeal process initiated by the SC. The termination of his employment prior to the appeal process, failure to disclose relevant documentation, and severance of access to his work account, all suggest a lack of procedural fairness and transparency. The public announcements via the campaign’s website, listservs and on social media platforms made by SC, in which it makes “categorical” claims regarding the termination, suggest that the SC has already concluded the outcome of the appeal prior to its completion. These claims further undermine the integrity of the appeal process.

Throughout this period, SKR has refused to make a statement regarding the need for a ceasefire despite the unprecedented level of violence being witnessed in Israel-Palestine. During this time, at least 20,000 people have been killed, mostly women, children and the elderly. 135 United Nations Staff— the highest number of UN fatalities recorded in a single conflict –other humanitarian aid workers, more than 300 medical personnel and more than 90 journalists and media workers have been killed. 85% of Gaza’s population has been forcibly displaced from their homes since the aggression began. UN experts have described these acts as “mass ethnic cleansing” and “a genocide in the making”. These atrocities have been committed in the context of a long standing occupation of a civilian population, in which one racial group dominates another through apartheid, a crime against humanity.

In addition, it is well known that Gaza and the West Bank have been the testing ground for some of the most advanced automated surveillance and warfare technologies before these are exported around the world. Human rights experts have noted that autonomous weapons systems have the potential to automate Israel’s uses of force and help entrench Israel’s apartheid against the Palestinian people. An investigation, conducted by +972 Magazine, raises the alarm over the use of Artificial Intelligence and automated technologies in the detection and selection of targets, used to kill civilians at an alarming rate, describing use of the “Habsora” system as enabling an “assassination factory”.

The SKR campaign has a published Vision and Values statement. In addition to concerns around the use of automated warfare technologies, these values include working to assist the vulnerable, and pursuing non-violent solutions to problems, using cooperation, negotiation, and activism to overcome systems of inequality and oppression. Given SKR’s professed commitment to these Vision and Values, it is alarming that the SC has not taken steps to issue a statement concerning these grave breaches of international law – and naming them as such – especially given reports that they are being aided through the use of automated warfare technologies.

The failure to issue such a statement, as well as the dismissal of Ousman as Government Relations Manager by the SC, point towards an underlying failure by the campaign’s leadership to abide by the campaign’s own Vision and Values. In addition, these actions suggest a failure to adhere to an intersectional approach to humanitarian disarmament, which requires recognition of the interconnectedness between layers of inequality and oppression, contributing towards power structures that favor certain protected groups over others.

In order to address these concerns, we call upon the SKR leadership to take the following immediate steps:

  1. To provide the remedies sought by Ousman in his Grounds of Appeal against termination, including to offer him reinstatement of his employment as Government Relations Manager for the campaign, and to provide him with relevant documents and access to his account to enable the fair conduct of his appeal.
  2. To provide the SKR campaign coalition members and the wider public with an honest, transparent and comprehensive explanation of how, why and by who, decisions were made leading to Ousman’s dismissal as Government Relations Manager for the campaign.
  3. To provide immediate and ongoing transparency in relation to the campaign’s sources of funding and affiliations.
  4. To institute mechanisms within the campaign structure to ensure responsiveness and receptivity to campaign organizations regarding the preparation and publication of relevant statements relating to conflicts around the world.
  5. To commit to a genuinely intersectional approach to humanitarian disarmament, recognising the interconnectedness between layers of inequality and oppression, contributing towards power structures that favor certain protected groups over others.
  6. To issue a statement, in accordance with the campaign’s Vision and Values, to condemn and challenge the ongoing violations of international humanitarian and human rights law in Israel-Palestine.

The use of AI weapon systems in this genocidal response to non-combatants is truly sickening and horrific, given the overwhelming military superiority of US/Israeli  weaponry and fighting forces. I am therefore surprised Ousman’s employers have removed him from his position, rather than supported his position, given the work he and his employers are engaged in? I trust Ousman’s appeal against dismissal is heard, investigated fully and is successful, in regard to reinstatement, adequate compensation, or both.

Either one person or organization supports human rights across the board, or they do not support human rights. Either one supports IHL across the board or they do not support IHL. For these critical issues there can be no fence to sit on.

Firing Noor undermines the the purpose and integrity of the Stop Killer Robots organization and campaign, which is heartbreaking given that now, as such systems are being deployed to horrifying effects, is the time where we need such organizing and expert resistance the most.

It is only right that we speak up for those who have no voice, without the threat of baseless and meritless accusations and loss of jobs. The lack of balance, empathy, and kindness, the twisting of truth to frame a narrative that perpetuates mass assassination has broken the hearts of millions around the globe – whatever faith or no faith anyone has. For the good of the whole we must have an an end to the slaughter of innocent civilians who have nothing to do with the ugly side of politics and profit before people. There is plenty for everyone – no? What is wrong with wanting BALANCE for all of us? Why is that so hard for the ‘powers’ to accept and strive for! #CeaseFireNow and commit to finding a way through and stop this running round in destructive downward spirals that only seem to serve one purpose – divide and conquer, a tale as old as time. #TeamHuman #RightfulRights

Carolyn Lechusza Aquallo Free Palestine Free Palestine and stop the genocide of Palestinians. The UNSC’s abject failure has damaged it beyond repair and we are at a moral crossroads. We need to elect new leaders that represent the will of the regular people, that can govern wisely, and care for the populations they are elected to serve. The U.S.’s silence and aid of a genocide has created a national security threat and a moral voice. We have lost the last shred of credibility we had with the current administration’s absolute denial of a genocide. Biden, Blinken, McGurk, Sullivan, Austin, someone could have stood up and fought for the lives of over 10,000 massacred children. Someone could have had the courage to stop for a moment and risk their career to do the right thing. But no one was around to do that. Too busy, too tired, too invested in personal ambitions, too cowardly, too stupid, too smart, too low of a pay-grade. The entire administration and US Congress and media failed in this one moment to uphold the altered values that have been paraded around since the first genocide of the indigenous community and the second genocide of the African American community. A country of death spawns other proxy states of death like isra*l. The Palestinians have shown the world who wears masks of cowardice, greed, lies, and ego. We all do and we are all complicit.We can make the choice to continue with shame or take a stand and support Palestinian freedom.

Organisation Location Comment
NoEthicsInBigTech.com Previously founder of Ethics In Technology a 501c3 Menlo Park, California I have requested a statement in regards to Gaza from the campaign Steering Committee and Members since the start of this genocide, only to be told that I should be “warned” and “expelled” from the campaign. I have been told by a member of the Steering Committee that I should not raise questions in regard to Ousman’s termination from the group mailing list. My previous organization Ethics In Technology a 501c3 received multiple grants from the campaign. For each grant we received we provided full transparency in how we used the funds. Regrettably, the campaign has no transparency in regard to its own funding sources, steering committee’s action, and advisors. The calls to condemn the genocide by Autonomous Weapon Systems and AI in Gaza and the occupied territories have fallen on deaf ears.

I support this open letter
Freedom of expression is more important than ever.
Justice for Palestine
Ceasefire Now
Submissions were sent to the International Criminal Court documenting the current war crimes in Gaza. So, Be on the right side of history. https://www.aa.com.tr/en/europe/israel-s-series-of-war-crimes-in-gaza-must-be-tried-in-international-criminal-court-uk-academic/3052264
We don’t need humanitarian organizations that repeat the same official narrative we see in governments and mass media. We need ONGs that are really supporting imperialism under the excuse of Human Rights to disappear. The double standard we see when crimes or just violent actions, or just political movements, by a Western enemy compared to the narrative when is an ally or a Western country committing crimes… it’s so evident for the people with a brain, so make as a favour and stop selling this genocidal propaganda as humanitarian
Ceasefire now
Zionism is racism.
Shame on an organization for the public to fire someone over speaking up for the oppressed! Oh wait, maybe you are the oppressors?!!!
I am surprised, and ashamed, considering your overall stated aims, that you do not emphatically call for a ceasefire to the genocide being carried out by Israel in Palestine.
Where is your humanity. There’s a genocide taking place
Total biased organisation
#ceasefirenow  ;  it is simple and the right thing to do
We demand justice!
Free Palestine
Stop the genocide against Palestinians!
End the genocide
Free Palestine
Anti Hypocrisy, Equal rights every human in this earth.
This is absurd!
Thank you for standing up for justice
Free Palestine!!
Fully support Usman.
What a hypocritical organization, Israel should be the main objective of its campaign, the state that most violates human rights, the one that uses non-conventional and new weapons in what is called the Palestinian laboratory.
I have not been historically aware of the organization Stop Killer robots or Ousman Noor. But I follow Timnit Gebru and trust that she shares accurate information online. Therefore I’ve taken a few minutes to educate myself this morning on Ousman’s dismissal and am therefore signing in support.
Good luck!
Thank you for standing up for yourself, your rights and the Gazans. God bless.
Supporting Mr. Ousman Noor becauce he is a very honourable man
Free Palestine from Israeli oppression & genocide
Speaking against a genocide should not cost your job.
Punishment for calling out an obvious injustice is abhorrent and shouldn’t be allowed. Look back through the decades of Israeli behaviour in regard to the Palestinian people and you’ll find nothing but crimes against humanity. If in doubt contact Israeli historian Professor Ilan Pappé.
Reinstate Ousmam Noor. His temination was unjust. The mission of SKR is to stop the misuse of robotic killer machines, as being used in Gaza and West Bank. I would like to see a complete stop to all killer robots.
Unacceptable and unfair dismissal
Keep going justice will preveal
This is absurd when people are terminated from work for speaking up for voiceless people and exercising their freedom of speech right.
damn joe biden, damn genocide, free palestine.
Peace & equality for everyone now
Imagine the possibility of robots used in Gaza. It might likely have happened… were they available. I agree with your fight against robots. But please consider the innocent, of all races and creeds.
Really admire Ousman and coalition members for standing up for what is right.

Who do you care to call Uncle?


Let me start by answering that question.

I was blessed with two amazing real life uncles on my moms side and this past week the last one Dai Mojtaba passed away and joined his beloved wife Mahboobeh.

I wrote the book on The Age of Nepotism and I had to make sure he got a post on this site.

Dai Mojtaba was a family man who loved his wife immensely. He was a romantic at heart and put his heart on his sleeves and wore it with pride. He loved his kids, his sisters, brothers, nephew and nieces. He was full of love towards others. He never heart anyone and was too cool to admit if anyone hurt him.

My uncle was a sweet and at times naughty man that loved his German Beer Guardans. He was well read and educated and was politically insightful. He was in love with Iranian Arts and Culture. He believed that their is no reason to apologize for who we are or what we become as long as we can live with our thoughts and actions towards each other.

After his wife passed away he visited the Bay Area and we spent many good hours talking about politics while we shopped at local dispensaries for medicine.

My uncle, like myself, was well endowed and tall. We would both play the roulette wheel of the house with cigs and beers! His life might have been shortened by cigs but he really enjoyed them after a beer. He and I disregarded modern medicine because we both enjoyed it. Just imagine the time we save by not being healthy yoga buffs!

The amount of time you spend balanced, wedigitating, meditating is a lot. My uncle and I smoked and drank and we enjoyed it and I can tell you he never did a dog pose in his life on a yoga mat. I tried that a few times and now with all this metal in me getting down is tough let alone a dog pose.

My uncle, sweet, educated and a survivor. He was a real life hero. He brought his kids out of Iran while facing many of the issues that migrants face. Rest his soul.

When it came to politics and history my uncle was very informed. I always admired the amount of knowledge he had in Iranian and Western politics.
My uncle is survived by my two lovely cousins. I hope to see them soon. He died of a heart attack.

When you are an immigrant you realize you love people that identify with your roots, with your core, with your being. My Uncle is my core. My heart is with my cousins. I wish I was to be a leaning shoulder to cry on. Unfortunately I am not as they are in Germany and I am here in the US.

Misery loves company! Please join us in Munich on Friday or this Saturday at Sharon Park in Menlo Park at 5:30 PM.

Bring your wine and beer and a blanket and let’s remember our lost loved ones!

So tell me do you have a living or deceased uncle that you care to share about them?

OUR COMEDIANS

Will Durst

Acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political satirists in the country, Will Durst has patched together a comedy quilt of a career, weaving together columns, books, radio and television commentaries, acting, voice-overs, and most especially, stand up comedy, into a hilarious patchwork of outraged and outrageous common sense. His abiding motto is, "You can't make stuff up like this." The New York Times calls him "possibly the best political comic in the country." Fox News agrees "he's a great political satirist," while the Oregonian hails him as a "hilarious stand-up journalist.

Mean Dave

He is a regular at Cobb's Comedy Club, Punch Line in SF and Sacramento, and Rooster T. Feathers. He has opened for headliners such as Judy Tenuta, Big Jay Oakerson, Allan Havey, Tom Rhodes, Neil Hamburger, Brent Morin, Bret Ernst, and most importantly, Barry Sobel.

Originally ratified on December 10th, 1948, the UDHR is the most translated document in the world. It is the first official landmark of its time documenting the inalienable rights which everyone is inherently entitled to as a human being “regardless of race, color, religion, sex, language, political opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or another status.

We at EthicsInTech.com believe that every human being is entitled to the inalienable rights described by our founding forefathers and that every human being has a voice – and a choice to stand up and speak up for what they believe in. We understand that our world does not receive redemption nor judgment for the acts of only a few people. It takes the heart, soul, and action of every individual to build and form a nation. It is only after we educate and boost the well-being of all countries that we will be able to come together to form a better world.

At EthicsinTech.com, we believe that technology has the power to do amazing things. Technology gives us more power to do, act, and promote social justice and change. We believe that with this immense power of Big Tech comes immense responsibility – to use this new instrument ethically, humanely, and responsibly to improve the lives of ALL human beings versus just an elite few.

One of the most severe, widespread human rights violations that still exist today is digital censorship, digital rights, women’s rights, and the right of the disabled. Whether we are reviewing cases of imprisonment, violence, or social inequity in the workplace, multiple studies have shown us that our society still has a long way to go to support, raise awareness and promote digital rights, women’s rights, and human rights.

On December 10th, EthicsInTech.com will host a special event to present the inhumanity faced by digital rights and civil liberty activists from around the world. We will host a panel of speakers, activists, and technology leaders to hear their journeys, perspectives, and wisdom on how to do better to promote equal digital rights with dignity and respect for all.

Bernie Sanders leads calls for regulators to block Amazon’s purchase of One Medical

July 21, 2022 by Brett Wilkins for Common Dreams

Privacy, antitrust, and other advocates on Thursday sounded the alarm over Amazon’s purchase of boutique healthcare company One Medical, a move that one group said “opens a terrifying new frontier in surveillance of Americans by private corporations.”

CNBC reports Amazon is acquiring One Medical, a San Francisco-based private health services provider with 188 locations whose 767,000 members pay around $200 in annual concierge fees, for about $3.9 billion, or $18 per share.

Neil Lindsay, Amazon’s senior vice president of health services, told The Washington Post—which is owned by Amazon multi-billionaire founder and executive chairman Jeff Bezos—that “we think healthcare is high on the list of experiences that need reinvention.”

However, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) tweeted: “The function of a rational healthcare system is to provide quality care to all in a cost-effective way, not make billionaires like Jeff Bezos even richer. At a time of growing concentration of ownership, the Justice Department must deny Amazon’s acquisition of One Medical.”

Barry Lynn, executive director of the Open Markets Institute (OMI), an anti-monopoly think tank, asserted in a statement that “U.S. enforcement agencies should block this deal.”

“They should also move swiftly to establish a basic set of rules to protect every corner of America’s health industry from the power of the manipulation platforms,” he added.

If the One Medical deal is completed, it would mark Amazon’s third-biggest acquisition after Whole Foods ($13.7 billion) and MGM Studios ($8.5 billion).

While One Medical CEO Amir Dan Rubin said the Amazon acquisition presents “an immense opportunity to make the healthcare experience more accessible, affordable, and even enjoyable,” critics warned of the dangers to public health in a nation that spends far more per capita on healthcare than other developed countries while experiencing overall inferior outcomes.

“This will be a blow to the fight for universal healthcare,” opined journalist Aaron T. Rose. “Imagine all the money Amazon will pour into lobbying to stop Medicare for All now that they have a dog in the fight.”

Others expressed concerns about the threats to privacy and competition. OMI’s Lynn wrote:

Amazon’s takeover of One Medical is the latest shot in a terrifying new stage in the business model of the world’s largest corporations. The deal will expand Amazon’s ability to collect the most intimate and personal of information about individuals, in order to track, target, manipulate, and exploit people in ever more intrusive ways.

Amazon is not the only dangerous actor here. Google’s recent takeover of the fitness tracker Fitbit poses similar threats. Every American should stand against this radical extension of corporate power into our lives. In addition to manipulating how we talk to one another and do business with one another, Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Apple are moving fast to manipulate our perceptions of our own health and well-being.

In light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent reversal of Roe v. Wade and Republican-led states’ moves to criminalize people who have, perform, or “abet” abortions, reproductive rights advocates feared the implications of Amazon’s purchase.

“One Medical currently has healthcare locations in Georgia, Texas, Ohio, and Arizona—all states we can expect will prosecute pregnant people for abortions or adverse pregnancy outcomes,” tweeted Robyn Swirling, founder and executive director of the progressive advocacy group Works in Progress. “So you can maybe see why Amazon having their medical data is, perhaps, not going to be safe!”

This isn’t Amazon’s first foray into the healthcare services sector. It bought online pharmacy PillPack in 2018 for $750 million, launched Amazon Pharmacy in 2020, and earlier this year expanded its Amazon Care telehealth program nationwide.

“Is there anything,” asked NPR correspondent David Gura in response to Amazon’s latest acquisition, “this corporation won’t know about your day-to-day life?”

‘Unconstitutional’ South Carolina bill would criminalize sharing abortion info online

July 22, 2022 by Brett Wilkins for Common Dreams

Critics on Friday took aim at a proposed South Carolina law that would criminalize the online sharing of information about obtaining abortions and, according to some journalists, could even be used to silence stories related to reproductive rights.

S.B. 1373—which one prominent defense attorney called “a breathtaking assault on free speech”—contains language associated with organized crime conspiracy laws by targeting people who engage in “a pattern of prohibited abortion activity.”

“This is tremendously concerning for us. It is a target for folks who tell the stories of patients who need to access care, explain how care is [accessed], and the stories of providers and advocates who are helping make sure that happens,” Jessica Mason Pieklo, senior vice president and executive editor at the reproductive rights site Rewire News GrouptoldPrism.

“If we think that conservatives will stop at speech that targets abortion providers, people who write about abortion, people who offer scientific and medical information around abortion, we’re mistaken,” Pieklo added. “We know that this will bleed into other areas that evangelical and social conservatives deem inappropriate and deviant.”

Just before the U.S. Supreme Court’s right-wing supermajority overturned Roe v. Wade last month, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the nation’s largest anti-choice group, published model legislation that, in addition to banning abortion, criminalizes “aiding or abetting” the medical procedure.

According to S.B. 1373—parts of which are nearly identical to NRLC model law—”aiding or abetting” includes:

  • Providing information to a pregnant woman, or someone seeking information on behalf of a pregnant woman, by telephone, internet, or any other mode of communication regarding self-administered abortions or the means to obtain an abortion, knowing that the information will be used, or is reasonably likely to be used, for an abortion;
  • Hosting or maintaining an internet website, providing access to an internet website, or providing an internet service purposefully directed to a pregnant woman who is a resident of this state that provides information on how to obtain an abortion;
  • Offering or providing abortion doula services, knowing that the services will be used, or are reasonably likely to be used for an abortion;
  • Providing a referral to an abortion provider, knowing that the referral will result, or is reasonably likely to result, in an abortion; and
  • Providing a referral to an abortion provider and receiving monetary remuneration, or other compensation, from an abortion provider for the referral.

S.B. 1373 also contains novel “whistleblower” protections, imposing prison terms of up to 10 years for people who “take any action to impede” those who report violations of the law to the state attorney general.

The National Law Review said the bill “also provides an extremely broad definition of what constitutes ‘actions impeding a whistleblower.’”

Michele Goodwin, director of the Center for Biotechnology and Global Health Policy at the University of California, Irvine Law School, called S.B. 1373 “unconstitutional,” but warned such bills would nevertheless likely proliferate.

“These are not going to be one-offs,” Goodwin told The Washington Post. “These are going to be laws that spread like wildfire through states that have shown hostility to abortion.”

Digital rights campaigners highlighted the role—and responsibility—of Big Tech in light of bills like S.B. 1373, with New Jersey congressional candidate and attorney Stephanie Schmid asserting that “it’s time for tech companies to get off the sidelines.”

The Center for Democracy & Technology says that “crucially, companies should carefully scrutinize and seek to limit the scope of surveillance demands issued in prosecutions to enforce anti-abortion laws.”

“They should adopt clear and consistent standards for refusing overbroad requests, commit to giving their users timely notice of requests, and report publicly the numbers of surveillance demands they receive to increase public accountability,” the advocacy group added.

In a bid to counter legislation like S.B. 1373, congressional Democrats last month introduced a bill, the My Body, My Data Act, that would establish privacy protections for reproductive health data.

Earlier this month, a coalition of reproductive rights groups filed a lawsuit in state court challenging the legislation, which Center for Reproductive Rights president and CEO Nancy Northup said is causing “mayhem at an unimaginable scale.”

As of last month, abortion is banned in South Carolina after six weeks of pregnancy, except in cases of rape or incest, or when the pregnant person’s life is in danger.

UN CALL FOR EASING INTO WORLDS LARGEST OPEN AIR CONCENTRATION CAMP

Secretary-General calls again on Israel to ease Gaza blockade

19 June 2009 – Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon repeated his call on Israel to ease its blockade on Gaza during a meeting today in New York with Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman.
Mr. Ban also called for a freeze on all settlement activity, including natural growth, and for Israel to allow the resumption of stalled United Nations projects in Gaza, according to information provided by his spokesperson.

On Wednesday, a group of UN agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) called for an end to the blockade on Gaza, which has now been in force for two years and has left the population of 1.5 million almost totally dependent on international aid.

In addition to Gaza, the Secretary-General and Mr. Liberman discussed a number of regional issues including Lebanon. Mr. Ban briefed the Foreign Minister on his upcoming report on Security Council resolution 1701, which ended the 2006 war between Israel and Hizbollah.

On the Middle East Peace Process, the head of the UN reiterated the need for a political process based on the two-State solution and negotiations on all core issues, as envisaged in international law, Security Council resolutions, and existing agreements.

The two men also discussed Iran, with Mr. Ban reiterating his belief that the nuclear issues can and should be resolved through peaceful means, in accordance with relevant Security Council resolutions.
